I wonder if any of my fellow UK crew here saw the channel 4 program last night on the seal team 6 mission?
It just seemed a total cock up from the moment the stealth chopper crashed at the start to the seal team needing nearly 30 mins to get to the point they shot him(or not him!).It wasnt that big a place and if we went by what we saw last night in the program they only encountered a few (bad guys)in the compound
It conflicted with other reports of heavy resistance,and seeing as POTUS and white house staff were happy to talk about the mission from start to finish it must have been aproved from them to be seen by us the public!
We kept hearing how they had to get in and out of pakistan quick,as the longer they stayed there the more chance the pakistan army would shoot them down!So 30 mins is quick?and never mind two chinooks coming in that surely were not stealth to land and other non SF forces getting off to sweep the buildings after the seal team and pick up all those bin laden hard drives!
The dramatic reacting of the final bin laden kill shot was there,with an ex seal team 6 member saying its good to know that his last vision would have been looking at an american seal member looking down the sights of an amercian gun before it fired at him.
One thing that stood out was the stealth chopper that crashed was glossed over,and they destroyed it before they left.
I get a sneaky feeling that chopper crashing resulted in big loss of life,and the reason it wasnt a quick in and out snatch/ghost the target mission is the amount of time it took to get all those bodies out and the wait for two chinooks to arrive.
The original mission plan must have been the two stealth choppers flying low and hard,with the elite seal team bagging and tagging bad guys and bringing intel out quickly.Then both stealth choppers would take them back quickly and silently
I think the later downed chopper in afganistan with seal members lost was a cover up,to hide the body count from this mission
